Research Centers

Our work involves evolutionary biology, ecology, parasitology, microbiology, genetics, and immunology.

Our mission is to promote interdisciplinary research and education in the areas of Immunology and Infectious Diseases.

The Center was formed in 1997 to develop and expand programs in toxicology and carcinogenesis at Penn State. Over the past ten years the Center has fostered the development of graduate and undergraduate programs in toxicology.

The Center for Pollinator Research at Penn State is committed to developing and implementing integrative, multidisciplinary approaches to improving pollinator health, conservation, and management for ecosystems services through research, education, outreach and policy.

The Center for Reproductive Biology and Health at Penn State includes a group of faculty who are deeply committed to the improvement of reproductive health and function through integration of fundamental and applied research and dissemination of knowledge.

Part of Animal Diagnostic Laboratory, the Center is the largest repository for E. coli strains in America. It holds more than 70,000 strains collected over the last 50 years from animals, humans, birds and environment.
